Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov held a meeting with Ambassador of Great Britain to Ukraine Judith Gough.

During the meeting, the interlocutors discussed the topical issues of cooperation between Ukraine and Great Britain, the situation in the East of Ukraine, and the systematic violations of the Minsk agreements by the Russian-terrorist groupings, the NSDC press service reported.

Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine stressed the importance of strengthening the partnership relations between our countries, including in the military-technical sphere.

In turn, Judith Gough emphasized that Great Britain supported and will continue to support Ukraine "in matters of protecting its territorial integrity and on its way of implementing reforms and European integration".

The interlocutors acknowledged the need to prolong sanctions against the Russian Federation for curbing Russia's aggressive militaristic actions, which pose a threat to peace in Europe.
